Hi – we need to get rid of pantry moths in our kitchen. What is the most effective product for that? Thanks.
If you review our PANTRY MOTH CONTROL article, you’ll learn what you need to do including what the best products are to apply, how to prepare, etc.
The first step is to clean out the pantry, cupboards and basically anywhere food is stored or where you have seen moth activity. Remember, any place you see flying adults, their young maggot worm like larvae or where you’ve found their pupating cocoons all need to be cleaned and made accessible for treatment.
Contaminated food items will need to be discarded as well. Anything you keep which you suspect might be infested, store it in a plastic bag to insure nothing can escape in case it has insects you don’t see. Now after a month of no activity, you can safely return any item to its regular location. At that point you’ll know its free and clear if no larvae or adults emerge by a month.
Next, you’ll need to treat all the cupboards, pantry space and basically any room with activity using PHANTOM AEROSOL. This product goes on dry and will last 3-4 weeks. During this time it will be killing any hatching larvae as well as any adults moving around the home which land on treated surfaces.
Lastly, you’ll need to set out MOTH TRAPS in the same areas. These will help by collecting foraging adults.
